Within weeks of joining CHG, Linda Groth, client associate at CompHealth allied health in Grand Rapids, Mich., came in second place in a water-pong tournament! This is just an example of how Linda has come to embrace the fun and caring culture at CHG, a company which she claims is unlike anything you have ever experienced.
What do you do at CHG and what do you like about your job?
My title at CompHealth is client associate. I work directly with the client representatives in my office as well as the clients in order to obtain specific assignment information that is included in the PPAs of assignments.
When did you come to CHG?
I started at CHG in November 2011.
How did you hear about CHG and what made you want to apply?
I heard about CHG through Chantelle Jones, manager of operations at CompHealth allied health staffing in Grand Rapids, Mich. She continuously spoke with me about how awesome the company was and how much they care about their employees. I was interested instantly.
Where were you working before you came to CHG?
I was working in the offices of a steel company based in Grand Rapids. I worked here directly upon graduating from college.
How has working at CHG compared to your other working experience?
Working at CHG has been amazing compared to my past experiences. It’s amazing to work for a company that invests in the employees and actually cares. I also love that I am able to be challenged every day and there are opportunities for advancement and growth in my future. I never felt that before.
What can you tell me about your first day?
The only thing I really remember about my first day (besides all of the training) is being completely amazed by how fun and happy the environment was. I left a company that was very high-stress with many unhappy employees. CHG was a relief to see! Also, at my last company, there was no formal training process. It was very sink or swim. However, when I came to CHG, I was presented with a schedule of a week’s worth of training and it was such a relief.
What has been your most memorable experience so far?
The first thing that I learned to embrace at CHG is our “fun zone.” In my first couple of weeks, we had a water-pong tournament that everyone could participate in. It was really great to have coworkers watching and cheering for me even with me being so new. I felt like part of the team at CompHealth. It was really fun and exciting, not to mention, I came in second in the tournament.
Do you have any advice for new or potential CHG employees?
Be ready to learn and be ready to embrace the culture. This company is like nothing you have ever experienced. Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions and don’t be afraid to be yourself. Everyone is completely open and welcoming.
